Concert for the Community: Featuring Mark and Cindy Lemaire

Mark Lemaire’s music is both ethereal and deeply grounded, the guitar playing virtuosic and not quite like anything you’ve heard before. He’s shared the stage with Tracy Chapman,
Maria Muldaur, and bass virtuoso Michael Manring. Recording studio experiences include work with producer Jimmy Miller (Rolling Stones, Blind Faith, Traffic), and Johnny Thunders (New York Dolls).
While Mark’s solo guitar compositions stand as complete statements, the message in the vocals adds another dimension. Mark performs with his partner, vocalist Cindy Lemaire, who adds harmony, humor, and that “indefinable something” to the
act. This is music for adults, yet with clarity and incisiveness appealing to the part of us that is ageless
